I Cried

When you touched me, I cried.

I cried a cry that you couldn't see or hear, no matter how closely you observed.

It was a cry of feeling so alone, tormented, messy, and confused.

It spelt out I love you and I want you, but you didn't know that.

You couldn't have imagined the thoughts and emotions rushing through me, it was like a wave crashing into my soul.

A few seconds before you hugged me, I was thinking please don't do it.

In that moment you did it, everything hit me like a bolt of lightning.

You did this, you did this to me and still had the nerve to say go find someone.

I did find someone, years ago, it was you.

The trouble is I found you at the wrong time, the time you lost feeling, the time you completely changed in the worst way.

You shut me out and still called me a part of your life.

Now can you tell me you care?
